A VOICE FOR ANG!!!!… Angela’s mother speaks out

Sigga Lynn Holm says:

Hi, I am the mother of the victim Angela Holm. Here is my story. 

My babygirl, did not deserve the tragedy she endured. Back in May of 2008 Angela underwent a cord blood transplant. Her brother Randall (whom passed away Jan.2008) and her suffered from an immune disorder, Hypogammaglobianiemia. After we lost Randall, the Dr’s. pushed for Angie’s transplant, Randall was to get one too, however we (Dr.’s & I) couldn’t get him strong enough to go through the procedure. Unfortunately Angie’s cord blood did not take, her body was rejecting the transplant…so now the next step was an actual bone marrow transplant. The Dr.’s gave Angie a month and a bit break. Then in Sept. 2008 we did it all over again for the bone marrow transplant…I must say my babygirl was a very strong willed person who never gave up. Our prayers were answered. The transplant was working….Angie was winning!!!! Our miracle!!!!

On the weekend prior to May 25, 2009 my babygirl went to spend it with her Uncle Rudolph and his family. She was really close with his children and step children and loved spending time with them. She would phone me before she went to bed at night to say “k mom I’m going to bed, good night, I love you and I’ll call you when I get up..” She never got to call me in the morning again….instead my morning 6AM call was from her dad telling me Angie had been stabbed, and was at the hospital. I make it down to the hospital only to be told, my babygirl didn’t make it, and when I said I wanted to see her, I was told no. Angela had 13 stab wounds and 6 defence wounds, which means the offender Daniel Jesse James Munroe made a total of 19 attempts on her, as she was laying asleep on the couch!!! Totally unprovoked…her future and life taken just like that, and now he’s NCR!!! I don’t understand!!!

I’m gonna continue now with my VIS (victim impact statement). I’ll post the original and that will be followed by the edited one, which was edited by the review board.

A VOICE FOR ANG!!!!
I’m writting this for Angela Rachelle Louise Gail Holm, Baby Ang, my beautiful babygirl. I finially get to voice a voice for Ang; this is what the offender(Munroe) hear’s….VOICES, and yet as he committed murder you can’t tell me NOR convince me, Munroe didn’t hear my babygirl’s screams, DON’T DAN, PLEASE DON’T, PLEASE STOP!!!! Now he’s gonna hear my voice.

I was taught by my mom not to use hate, to instead use dislike or don’t like; but as for you Munroe, you’ve taught me to literally hate you!!!! I HATE YOU DANIEL JESSE JAMES MUNROE!!!!!!(sorry mom)

Angie was the second and last child born to me. She suffered and immune deficency that required her to get monthly gamma injections. In the months prior to her tragedy she underwent a cord blood transplant which didn’t take, so the Dr.’s did a second attempt with a bone marrow transplant. This time it was working for her. As I mentioned earlier the monthly gamma injections came to an end, right on her 16th birthday, Feb.24/09. Our miracle, no more monthly needles. She was winning her battle. The fear of losing my babygirl to the medicle procedure (bone marrow transplant) was gone. Our journey was rough but she was a trooper and never gave up, even on her sickest day and nights, and believe me there were many.

As her body began to change, her life began to change. She was back at school part time, had a part time home tutor and was waitressing. Yes she had a job, something you NEVER had Munroe.

Angie was my rock, my survivor!! After we lost Randall (her brother, my son) in Jan.08 she was all I had left and you took that away from me!!!!

Throughout her struggles she would always seem to smile, sing and dance around. Always listening to music dancing around the house shaken her booty. I miss my babygirl so much. I miss her jumping into my bed on weekends, tickleing me and giving me butterfly kisses, which WAS us fluttering our eyelash’s together.

The Dr’s admired her strength, as so did I.

Because of you Munroe, Christmas will never be the same,I won’t see my baby graduate and I won’t be able to experience her wedding. When you too my daughter away you also took those away. Not to mention Angie would have been 18 on Feb.24. My life will never be the same because of you. I HATE you for this!!!

May my baby RIP!!!! And don’t worry Munroe, HER VOICES WILL HAUGHT YOU!!!!!!

(this was followed by a poem I wrote for my babygirl before she went into hospital, it will follow the edited vis)

And now the EDITED VERSION!!!!!

How many more murders have to happen before the law see’s there has to be a change…it’s no wonder there are so many murders being committed….my philosophy is
Hey wanna kill someone, just come to manitoba, you will be NCR!!!!

Not to mention the fact that IF I ever go crazy, I will be put in the same facility as MURDERERS!!!!!! These people should be put in jail!!!! Afterall they DID committ a crime!!!!! And a terriable crime!!!!

  1. obviously the person was mentally ill. What happened is a tragedy but locking up the offender for life is not going to bring your daughter back. I have trouble understanding all of the medical information ” Are you ttying to say that this is more tragic as your daughter was ill”. Do you understand that illness but not mental illness?

  2. You were well on your way onto living a normal, hospital free life. You were becoming to be the teenager every young girl dreams about. School, a job, an oh so loving family that loved you to pieces…. That all got taken away from ONE boy, ONE night but dont get me wrong, we ALL still love you to pieces, always & forever!
    I would really like to see what Daniel’s feeling, i would like to know if he’s going crazy over it & i really hope he is. He shouldn’t be getting monitored, he shouldn’t be getting all this special treatment and getting all this attention by the doctors. He should be sitting in a jail cell with every other murderer out there. Let him suffer for what he has does. Let him think about it over and over again, every single day for the rest of his living life without all the crazy pills to get his mind off of it.
    I can go on and on about this all day if I wanted to but this is just some of my thoughts about this tragedy, and for you Daniel Munroe. You will get what’s coming for you, if its not today, tomorrow, next year.. Actually I hope it takes a few years to let you suffer & then I hope karma gets to you.
    I Love & Miss you so much Angela. No kind of words can explain the pain I go through everyday when I think about you, the day you passed. & Now ill never get to see you again, Nathaniel won’t be able to meet his beautiful aunty but I know you’re watching, smiling down on us.
    I’ll meet you at the crossroads babygirl. I love you <3

  3. I think it is pretty sad that someone is attacking one of the victims in one of these cases! Especially when the step dad was also stabbed in the same case. which I may add didn’t even show up to court.
    I was there in the courtroom and Daniel didn’t even show any remorse for what he had done. I was a JOKE! The Prosecutor and the defense Lawyer had it all worked out even before we arrived. Is this Justice? This was a way for them to say we are not going to waste taxpayers money! A speedy trial! How many more people are gonna die before they change this law? If it was one of the lawyers or judges children , How fast would this law be changed?
    As for Vince Li, The man knew he was sick, he chose not to take his medication therefore the man should be responsible for his actions, he should of been charged with premeditating murder.
    If you drink and drive and you kill someone you are charged with murder, Why not in these cases? these people disgust me, and I really can’t say much for the people who are defending them, but only well I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!!!!!

  4. As the admin of Tim’s Law, I would like to remind people leaving comments that the premise of this site is to have a constructive dialogue to promote change in a system. Understandably, emotions can be raw and very volatile when a loved one is lost in what is usually a very senseless act of violence.

    But all to often the perpetrator has displayed symptoms prior to the event that catapulted the situation into the media spotlight.

    Symptoms that may have caused concern to those around the person… symptom that may have been misunderstood, or played down as a phase the person is going through.. and tragically sometimes help has been sought and inadequately treated, or misdiagnosed,and yes even answers such as “come back later have been heard”.

    Many lives are destroyed in all of these situations… not just the victim and the perpetrator. So much is lost by all. Could this tragedy have been averted… maybe or maybe not.

    So while Angela and her family have paid the largest price( a price that can not be measured)…Daniel’s family, and yes even Daniel, have paid a price that maybe could have been averted with proper intervention.

    While the premise of Tim’s Law is justice, the goal is to avert the need for justice in the first place… by promoting the conversation of mental health issues before tragedies happen.

    I have unapproved a number of comments that I felt were inflammatory and not constructive to achieving the stated goals of Tim’s Law.(no one has been banned for the comments)

    Be the voices of those who can no longer speak for themselves… it is only by bringing change we can honor their lives and bring some peace to the loss everyone has suffered.

    Thanks
    David

  5. We were all brought into this life originally by one person God. He is the decision maker of things. For one per to sit there and take God’s job away from him it just a shame. God decided’s when are time to go is, and he also doesn’t judge people for what they do with their life.It was not Angie’s time to go as it would have been a natural death and what happened to her well there is nothing natural about it at all. For people to sit and judge make public of one’s life and say that they didn’t care before this happened, I say BS, Everyone did care and very much so, Angie always had family and friends around. And was not neglected and had a very strong support system helping her win her fight (before, during & after) with her sickness. The one person that I always saw her with was her mom, they were like 2 peas in a pod always laughing and just being happy.

    On a legal point of view, basically taking in what happened and the outcome tells me one thing: That a person can go ahead and kill someone and still get away with it. Plead insane and have the rest of their life catered to in a mental hospital where they are not responsible to be an adult and own up to their duty to become an active member of society by working and living the everyday life that the rest of us do. Basically it is an easy out for anyone who is just lazy and doesn’t want to actually live like Angie wanted too.

  6. she was my best friend, and that horrible person took her from all of us, he doesnt deserve what he got. he got off easy and thats so not right. he took my everything away from me 3 years ago and my life will never be the same. i dont think anyones will.. as far as im concerned he belongs in a hole, he doesnt deserve the right to live his life while angie suffered and now she cant. she was beautiful and becoming healthy but of course he had to ruin that.

  7. Lynn,

    Ang was a beautiful young woman and a fighter. We miss her visits, her smile and laugh around here. She will always be in our hearts and my prayers go out to you.

    Justice was not served.

  8. Daniel munroe should be in jail ,if your able to do a terrible crime and take away the life of a 16 year old BEAUTIFUL young girl .. then you deserve to be behind bars .

  9. It gross aunty and its not right. Things should have never happened like that or ended that way with that greasy scum of a life. He should be under ground with the dirt.

  10. It is a very sad situation when god gives us life & scumbags take our loved ones away. What is this world coming to when someone admits to murder & because they admit it they are not held responsible> how can a judge or jury sleep at night, do they consider that if it was a family member of theirs that was unjustly murdered guaranteed they would want justice. It makes me sick that if people have enough money or the right lawyer they actually get away with murder.They go to a hospital for a few years & go back to living their life when the beautiful soul who was murdered never comes back. They never see their family, they never have graduation, marriage or children or grandchildren, there life is just over…
